Volunteer Nelson has won the inaugural Community Impact award at the Nelson Business Awards.
Judges said the benefits to our community of all entrants in this category is immense but Volunteer Nelson stood out for its impact on the lives of those in the community.
“We are a better community because of them.”
The judges felt that despite the relatively low profile, Volunteer Nelson has the greatest reach into so many areas of our community.
“They are the busiest, behind the scenes organisation you might never have heard of.”
Manager Gordon Oldfield thanked all the volunteers across the country that give up their time to help the community.
